We present new radio images obtained with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) and the Very Large Array (VLA) for a group of 14 galaxies belonging to the 2-Jy sample of radio sources. The new images improve the data already available on these objects and, in general, the database that we are building up on the sample. They will also be used for follow-up work where radio-optical comparison will be done.

We briefly discuss the core dominance parameter (R) for the objects for which the new data have given new information and, in particular, for broad line radio galaxies (BLRG). One of the BLRG does not show a core, even at 3 cm, and this is at variance with the general tendency of BLRG to have relatively strong cores. The depolarization is also discussed for a group of small double-lobed radio galaxies.

Key words: galaxies: active -- radio continuum: galaxies -- polarisation
